“Watch it die, like the banking industry.” – das letzte Interview von Louise Wilson (Central Saint Martins) zum Stand der Modeindustrie

“…are there a lot of designers that matter? That’s the difference. The industry hasn’t got a litmus test any more. Now, if a girls’ school from Bradford has enough money to put on a show during fashion week, not only would it be reviewed but it could also get some celebrities there. And everybody gets the same review, because none of the reviews are even critical since everybody is networking to their next post. So the whole thing has imploded. Watch it die, like the banking industry.”

Nach dem plötzlichen Tod von Louise Wilson hat das Magazin DAZED & CONFUSED das letzte Interview mit ihr veröffentlicht und einen längeren Artikel über den Einfluss der Central Saint Martins’ Professorin dazu geschrieben.

In dem Interview spricht Wilson äußerst kritisch über Internethypes und fordert junge Kreative dazu auf, nicht ständig “random things” im Internet zu machen und sich so schnellen, leicht verdienten Applaus abzuholen, sondern sich um die Qualität ihrer Arbeit zu kümmern.

It doesn’t get them jobs. This concept of being noticed, I don’t know what it brings you. Because it’s a hell of a lot of people being noticed and having funded dinner parties and goodness knows what else, and I really don’t know if they’ll still be around at the age of 40. My students are noticed by the people I respect from the quality of their work. It’s not all fur coat and no knickers. It’s fully knickered under the fur coat.”

Das gesamte Interview findet ihr in der Sommerausgabe von DAZED & CONFUSED.
